Surin's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy silk thread, dyeing color, and materials for making traditional silk skirts.

Surin's story

Surin lives with her husband, daughters, and sons in a Khmer community of Surin province. Basically, her family earns income from growing jasmine rice. However, because she has to be responsible and support education for her daughters, she joined and learned to weave silk cloth from the weaving group in her village.

Then, Surin initiated her own business. Now, she needs a loan to expand the business, so she applied for the micro-loan to buy more silk thread, dyeing color, and other materials for weaving the traditional silk skirts. The loan would help her to increase her monthly income as well as empower poor women in this rural area.
